There are new questions about video evidence in the death of Kendrick Johnson. He is the 17-year old from Georgia whose body was found inside a rolled-up wrestling mat in his high school's gym. Authorities ruled the case an accident, but Kendrick parents have always believed their son was murdered. There are serious questions about sloppy forensic work and the poor treatment of Johnson's remains.
Doubts deepened after CNN obtained hundreds of hours of surveillance video from the school.
CNN’s Victor Blackwell has more on what this video says and what it doesn't say about Kendrick Johnson's death.

A massive relief operation is just getting into gear across the Philippines.
Philippines Red Cross Chairman Richard Gordon talks to Anderson about the effort to deliver supplies to hard hit Tacloban. “ We have bodies in the water, bodies on the bridges, bodies on side of the road.”
Tonight, Anderson Cooper anchored live from Manila after his flight to Tacloban was turned around due to another potential storm.
For so many people in the Philippines, surviving the Typhoon Haiyan was just the beginning of a nightmare. Busy cities like Tacloban are now completely devastated.
